Clubs On Campus

GirlTech 

GirlTech is a sisterhood of coders that support each other in our journeys through the world of computer science. We teach beginners various coding skills through small lessons and fun activities. Together, we make programs that impact our school and community! Our mission is to promote the growth of women in computer science and close the gender gap in the tech industry. We want to create a new visual of who a programmer is.

OLQM GirlTech:

Through GirlTech, we conduct a program where we bring middle school girls from OLQM (a nearby middle school with limited computer/coding resources) to STA and teach them basic fundamentals of coding through Scratch and block-code projects. It takes place during our GirlTech meetings, and they go to another part of the room where GirlTech volunteers will teach them coding. While they code, they can see us code. (This began as with GirlTech volunteers going to the middle school, but this year starting in October the middle schoolers will come to STA)

 Also look out for  Perfect Club 4 U  coming to Canvas soon
